For complex score, I think the best choice is to use the best of the two (fantastic) sw, LilyPond and ConTeXt:

I typically render the score with lily, and prepare a (more or less complex) layout with ConTeXt

I've finished last night this:

and I have to say that I'm very happy of the result (receiving congrats from the players).

Many thanks to all for all the development, support and documentation work

I hope to write something about these experiences soon

Is there a way to typeset (simple) musical scores with ConTeXt/á
XeTeX? I found Lilypond, but whether it is supported now is obscure.
There is a lilypond module for ConTeXt. It passes on the music
typesetting to Lilypond and imports the pdf back into ConTeXt. I do
not know if it works with XeTeX.

I just checked - the LilyPond module still works with latest ConTeXt á
and at least with LilyPond 2.10. Didn't try XeTeX, though.

I did this interview where I just mentioned that I read Foucault. Who doesn't in university, right? I was in this strip club giving this guy a lap dance and all he wanted to do was to discuss Foucault with me. Well, I can stand naked and do my little dance, or I can discuss Foucault, but not at the same time; too much information.
